Tamron TAP-in Console
Tamron TAP-in Console is a simple attachment that gives more control over how SP-series lenses respond during operation. Used in conjunction with the TAP-in Utility software for Mac and Windows, this console connects to Canon EF lenses at the bayonet mount and permits customization over-focus adjustment, focus distance limiter, VC adjustment, and full-time manual focus override settings. Additionally, lens firmware can also be updated by accessing a dedicated website while the lens is attached to the console.
This console is compatible with Canon EF-mount versions of the following lenses:
10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD
SP 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2
17-35mm f/2.8-4 Di OSD
18-400mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD
24-70mm f/2.89 Di VC USD G2
35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD*
45mm f/1.8 Di VC USD*
SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2
70-210mm f/4 Di VC USD
SP 85mm f/1.8 Di VC USD
SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD
100-400mm f/4.5-6.3 Di VC USD
SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD G2
*An initial firmware update performed by a Tamron service facility on these lenses is required to enable compatibility with Tamron’s TAP-in Console.
Focus Adjustment: Focus can be adjusted in three distance ranges-close, intermediate, and far-and for zoom lenses, an additional eight segments are available for a combined total of 24 adjustable regions. This lets you make micro-adjustments to how a lens focuses, as well as compensate for any unwanted front- or back-focusing issues.
Focus Distance Limiter Customization: For lenses featuring a Focus Limiter switch, this setting lets you configure the specific distance ranges, using near and far distances, the lens-based switch will constrain focus.
